2005/04/02: V1.2.1 contains minor improvements, e.g. a tool tip displays the maximum memory available to the VM.

2005/04/02: V1.2.0 works with Eclipse 3.1 M6 and provides another small bug fix. Starting with this release an update site is used to make installation and upgrades smoother.

2005/03/12: V1.1.0 improves the automatic gargabe collection, which slowed down the opening of new Eclipse windows in previous versions.
